Boss draws a blank in his hunt for keeper to replace veteran
NEW Quay manager Jonion Evans has drawn a blank in his search for a goalkeeper to replace veteran Simon Church, who has decided to hang up his boots after a 30-year career.
Last term was the most momentous in the club's history as the Seasiders retained the Costcutter League division one title and captured Cwpan Ceredigion and the Bay Cup.
Although he has the majority of last season's squad available, he lacks an experienced goalkeeper.
Evans said: "The goalkeeping position is a big problem. Replacing Churchy is easier said than done and if there is a goalkeeper out there interested in joining a successful and ambitious club, I would like to hear from him."

Runners-up last term, Maesglas are hoping to go one better and manager Paul Jones is putting together a more than useful squad at Maes Radley in Cardigan.
A huge plus for the Blues is the return of Dai Cole, considered by many as one of the most gifted midfielders on the circuit.
Also back in the fold is talented defender Ricky Maskell.
Boss Jones said: "I hope to keep last season's squad and with a few additions hopefully we can go well from the start."
It's also as you were at Lampeter Town with Terry Jones remaining in the hot seat.
Town blew hot and cold last season and although there are no new arrivals at North Road as yet, Jones is preparing for a determined challenge for honours and hoping his players can show more consistency.
Optimism is also high at fourth-placed St Dogmaels, where Steve Williams is planning an assault on the various trophies up for grabs.
Saints lifted the League Cup last time out, but losing in the final of the J Emrys Morgan Cup against Penybont United from Powys still rankles as the Greens under-performed and went down 2-0.
During the final, the Teifi Estuary villagers lost goalkeeper Casey Walters with a serious shoulder injury. He missed the remainder of the season which proved costly.
Williams said: "We have not won the league title since 2007 and before that it was 1997, so it would be nice to put the silverware in the trophy cabinet next season."
